The Big Pie of NSW Now Located

The Southern Highlands is the home of Australia’s newest BIG Thing with the creation of ‘The Big Pie’ of NSW now located at the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre in Mittagong, NSW. The Big Pie has been created in recognition that the Southern ‘Pie-Lands’ is Australia’s ‘home of pies’ as the region celebrates the month long Pie Time festivities during June.

Destination Southern Highlands’ group manager Steve Rosa said, “We initially submitted an entry for the Big Pie NSW to recognise our positioning in the last two years as Australia’s Home of Pies with our innovative and award-winning destination marketing campaign Pie Time, but were advised there was already a big pie constructed on the Gold Coast in Queensland,” she said.

“But, one thing that came out of our entry was the great support we had for a possible ‘big thing’ that could support our other big tourist attraction, the Big Potato in Robertson.”

The Big Pie sits at over two metres wide and one-and-a-half metres high and this month welcomes pie lovers to the Southern Highlands for Pie Time and Pie Fest.

The pie design and bright orange colour is reflective of Pie Time’s colour palette and imagery. The Big Pie was created from a local wine-pressing vat and is now a magnet for photographers and selfie moments for both locals and visitors. Following Pie Time, ‘The Big Pie’ will be positioned in the forecourt of the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre to promote the year round Southern Highlands Pie Trail.
